Question Experience with ritalin. Feel spaced out but calm!

What has been everyone's experience with ritalin? I'm curious! I've started taking meds two days ago and I find that it makes me feel a little spaced out. I feel super calm, so I'm not complaining but haven't really found it to help with my attention or focus yet. Also, I feel a bit sleepy - although I could be mistaking the calmness for sleepiness, who knows!

Re: Experience with ritalin. Feel spaced out but calm!

Ritalin is part of the methylphenidate class of medications unlike adderall or dexedrine which are amphetamines. People react differently to both. Ritalin gave me horrible mood swings so I take adderall. You may want to give yourself a couple of weeks to see if you adjust better to the ritalin before making a final decision.
